What Makes A Leader?

I meet and see a lot of self proclaimed “leaders.”
It’s almost as if everyone these days has been given the title of a “leader.”
You don’t have to go through too many Twitter bios or Facebook profiles to see the term “leader” being used.
While it’s a title we like to use, I wonder, what really makes a “leader.”
A leader is not…
  • A leader is not someone that decides one day to put “leader” in their bio.
  • A leader is not someone that has been given the title by the people around them.
  • A leader is not even, necessarily, someone in a position of power.
  • A leader is not someone who manipulates people into getting a task completed.
A leader is…
  • A leader is someone that makes the people around them better.
  • A leader is someone who leads people to a unified goal.
  • A leader is someone who cares about the people they lead and invest in their lives.
  • A leader is someone who’s willing to do the work and not take the credit.
  • A leader is someone who makes decisions with others’ interest at heart.
  • A leader gets results
So, are you a leader?
